Stripped – dVerse Open Link Night

IMG_2347

excise the superfluous

distil to the essence

strip away fat

reveal the bones

expose meaning to the light

and then write


 

Tonight is Open Link Night over at dVerse. No theme, no particular form, just poetry of your own choice. My offering tonightΒ is very short, but that reflects the whole point of the message!

If you hunger for more – more length, more delicacy, more romance, more form, more poetry, head on over to dVerse and enjoy – take part, even!
